This works fairly well in the prevention of acne, but it dries my skin out so I would not recommend daily use or at least not twice a day without a good moisturizer.

Charcoal really gets into your pores and makes your skin feel fresh and clean. One of the only facial cleansers that I have found that has really worked for my acne

heard it works well for others. I don't get acne often but when I do I'd like to clear it up. tried all face creams and this is just doesn't work for my skin Biore® Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser.
I just started using this product and it started to burn a little bit and my face looks like a tomato; is it suppose to do that? Or is it because my skin isn’t use to it yet?

i've been using this for two days and it dries my skin out SO horribly, is it supposed to do that?

Is it normal after the first few days to break out which I usually never do? And I woke up today and my face feels like there's little bumps all over, you can't see it but you can feel it. Is this normal and my skin getting used to it? Or a bad reaction and I should stop?
